The Wiki is at:

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Futurebasic

I will start seeding it with content from publicly available  
materials. I see no reason why the eventual documentation can't be  
converted to multiple formats. I convert documents from PBwiki to HTML  
help for the courses I teach.

Definitely need a link to that -- I'll add it to the documentation page!

I use PBwiki as a university instructor. It's okay, but I have issues  
with it from time to time. Also, it doesn't have quite the reach of  
the Wiki Foundation pages. We want as many people to find FutureBASIC  
as possible.

I thought about this option, but I'm just too swamped right now. Plus,  
it makes the project reliant on a single person or company.
